Samsung's upcoming smartwatch will have a round face surrounded by a rotating bezel, images released by the South Korean electronics giant showed on Tuesday.
The new watch is codenamed "Orbis" at present and is expected to be launched in September. Its bezel will allow users to move around the 1.18-inch circular screen, zoom in and out of pictures and control the volume without touching the screen, images from the developers kit compiled by website SamMobile showed. The bezel will therefore serve a similar purpose to the crown on the side of the Apple Watch.
Samsung has launched six smartwatches since 2013, pursuing a strategy of bringing products out quickly and seeing what sticks with consumers.
